Christmas is almost here – and nothing brings the festive season to life more than the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star carol service.

The fifth seasonal Concert of Carols will be held at Ipswich’s civic church – St Mary-Le-Tower – the Reverend Canon Charles Jenkin and his team hosting the event at the church.

This year’s service starts at 7pm on Tuesday, December 16, and tickets are now on sale from our office in Lower Brook Street, Ipswich.

They cost £2 per person and the money raised will be split between two local charities.

EADT and Star editor Terry Hunt said: “Our Concert of Carols has always been at the heart of the town’s festive celebrations, and I am delighted that we will be once again in Ipswich’s historic civic church. The service has always been a clear signal to the town that Christmas is almost with us, and I’m looking forward to seeing many of our readers at the church.”

“It donates money to ensure the most vulnerable people in our communities stay safe and warm.”
